2014 Sochi Olympics: Bob Costas’ Pink Eye Is Worse, and It’s Driving the Man to Drink (Pic + Video)

Remember last week when we told you Bob Costas had a nasty case of pink eye? Well, it sure didn’t seem like it could get any worse than that. After all, this is the face of the Olympics in the United States, and he only gets the chance to bask in that glory every other year. There just aren’t many things worse for a sports broadcaster covering a major event than a case of conjunctivitis in one of his eyes.

Of course, one thing that would be worse is having conjunctivitis in both eyes. And now that’s what Bob is dealing with.

Not pink eye. Pink eyes. Plural.

Double pink eye during the Olympics. Is that some terrible luck or what? It’s enough to drive a man to drink.

In fact, it’s enough to drive a man to drink…straight vodka…live and on the air.

I’d tell you to go on over to Twitter and send the guy some warm wishes. But come on, are you kidding? Bob Costas is not on Twitter. Just as well, too.
